These messages are synthesized from fragments of sentences and then a global rewriter re-arranges them to improve their meaning based on work done by Guillaume Marceau, Kathi Fisler and Shriram (see SIGCSE 2010). The rewriter catches English phrases at the moment; you might be best off checking it out first.

Well, thanks in any case! For the moment we decided to proceed with
the English version.

By the way, would it be a good idea to create a mailing list for
people who use (or intend to use) DrRacket in teaching, as separate
from an ordinary technical discussion? (I mean the main list.)

Here in Finland I know at least our team of three people who have
independently chosen (not knowing each other until quite recently)
DrRacket for teaching programming to (almost) complete beginners (not
CS-students), with encouraging results.

It would be nice to have a forum for sharing specific pedagogical tips
when using DrRacket, with people from all over the world.
